Submit your abstract and register for the EGU 2018 General Assembly

18 December 2017

The EGU 2018 General Assembly, which is taking place in Vienna, Austria from 8–13 April, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The deadline for abstract submission is 10 January, 13:00 CET.

In addition to established scientists, early career researchers – including undergraduate and graduate students – are encouraged to submit abstracts to present their research at the conference.

You can browse through the EGU 2018 sessions online (Call-for-abstracts). Clicking on ‘please select’ will allow you to search for sessions by Programme Group (e.g. NH: Natural Hazards) and submit your abstract to the relevant session either as plain text, LaTeX, or a MS Word document. Further guidelines on how to submit an abstract are available on the EGU 2018 website.

Please note that the EGU changed their rules regarding the Abstract Processing Charge (APC) of €40. As of last year, abstracts submitted to the programme group Educational and Outreach Symposia (EOS) will also be charged. Abstracts submitted to the GIFT workshop are exempted from this rule. Late abstracts (submitted by conveners until 18 January 2018) require a final approval by the Programme Committee and will be invoiced with €80.

Early registration for the conference is open until 1 March 2018. Scientists can register online on the General Assembly website. Note that EGU members benefit from substantially reduced member rates: to become a member, go to, where you can become a new member or renew your EGU membership.

If you are a journalist or public information officer, please check for information about media participation at the Assembly.
